Smash Hits Magazine

Smash Hits was a pop music magazine aimed at teenagers and young adults, featuring lyrics, photographs, interviews and news related to celebrity music acts in the UK (Later offshoots arrived in the US and Australia). After an initial test issue, the magazine started publishing in 1979, switching to a fortnightly schedule after three issues, and finally closing up in 2006. Starting in 2008, Brian McCloskey began a project called Like Punk Never Happened, providing scanned and described issues of Smash Hits with a 30 year delay. This archive is the result of his work.
